Another great episode. I liked the first scene where Hwi stood in front of Sunho and told him bravely he does not need his help to survive. Again as I expressed before, I think Sunho and his father's plan of Hwi killing Bangwon might be reversed.

 

I loved the scene where Hwi lent on the wall and was being sarcastic :lol: His character is getting even better and better. 

 

One of my favorite scenes for sure was Hwi and Heejae's. Their words were beautiful. You don't usually get such deep love. They haven't met a lot before parting ways, but those brief moments were enough, it's more like love at first sight, yet solid enough to grow stronger despite all the years and the difficulties ahead of them. Beautiful love. Seolhyun is doing a great job here, not to forget that. 

 

So Hwi and Bangwon finally team up, I'm already excited! :w00t: I think their bromance will outweigh that of Hwi and Sunho's lol.

 

Finally, I was hoping Yeon will remember everything and at least something will light up in Hwi's life, I was turned down. And please allow me to speak of YSJ's eye acting, specially those scenes related to Yeon. His eyes are so deep, be it the happiness whenever he gets a glimpse of her, or his sadness and fear that she might get hurt.

 

Looking forward to episode 8. Time is running so fast, it still feels like the drama started yesterday, and this is how good things usually are!

First look of Lee Bang Won  

For those who are not aware, there was actually a time jump of 4 years from ep 4-5. 1388 - YSG did the Wihwado retreat 1392 - YSG becomes the king   The little boy should have grow

DAMN,this is immoral,to expect us to wait till Friday after that freaking cliffhanger!!!!   I'm quite sure that Hwi double plotted with Bang Won to cross Nam Jeon and go all out with the ass

‘My Country’ episode 7 Knetz comments:


1.    Jang Hyuk is a great chemistry fairy, whether it’s with Lee Seung-gye or Hwi, great immersion…. When Hwi and Hee-jae come out, the ost was suitable, and the story is solid, so it's good to see! (+271 -5)


2.    When Jang Hyuk appears, it's the height of tension. In Seonjukgyo, the loneliness of being alienated from the founding of the country even if you were the one who shed blood instead of your father, it was expressed in a gentle metabolic tone. Lee Bang-won = Jang Hyuk (+213 -6)


3.    Jang Hyuk’s acting the best ~~ (+164 -7)


4.    I thought it would be fun if Jang Hyuk will shoot a KBS epic drama as the main character set at the end of the Goryeo Dynasty or the end Three Kingdoms Period. Or maybe Sejo will be fine. (+138 -4)


5.    Jang Hyuk's screen presence is beyond imagination! (+127 -5)

Sun-ho doesn't realize Hwi doesn't need Sun-ho to save him. It shows that although they are/were? bestfriends, Sun-ho doesn't know Hwi well enough, probably because he's primarily focused on his own goals. What Hwi needs from Sun-ho is for him to use his power to do the right thing, which is of course, also difficult considering Sun-ho's tricky position. 

 

Hmmm... I'm still 10 minutes in Episode 7 but I hope this episode is as good as or better than the previous ones.

The video is awesome! :w00t: And finally something with english subs, awww look at their cuteness. Their offscreen chemistry definitely reflects on their scenes and this is evident here. I like how each of them is cheering for the other. Can't comment on every single thing, it'll be nonstop lol. But that scene in the end looking at YSJ's tears, lol he gets immersed eaaaasily. And look how humble he is. Thanks for sharing!

When Sun-ho said he's been suffering everyday and endured the mockery and contempt to get this far, I felt that. He's been making cold decisions but I understand where he is coming from. Also, Hwi understands Sun-ho's situation but they both must do what they have to do. 

 

Anyway, sorry to ask but I think I may have missed something. Bang-won said he killed someone named Po-eun. Who is Po-eun? Does anyone know?

From wikipedia :   

 

Yi Bang-won was the fifth son of King Taejo. During his early days, he helped his father extend his support with the citizens and many influential figures of the government. Yi Bang-won helped his father found a new dynasty by assassinating powerful officials such as Jeong Mong-ju, who remained loyal to the Goryeo dynasty.

 

Jeong Mong-ju, also known by his pen name Poeun , was a prominent Korean scholar-official and diplomat during the late Goryeo period.

Some more interesting historical facts about Po-eun and his death:

 

Following a banquet held for him, Jeong Mong-ju (Poeun) was assassinated in 1392 by five men on the Sonjuk bridge in Gaeseong. Politically motivated, the murder was ordered by Yi Bang Won, the fifth son of Yi Seong gye who overthrew the Goryeo Dynasty in order to establish the Joseon Dynasty.

 

Jeong Mong-ju was murdered because he refused to betray his loyalty to the Goryeo Dynasty. Yi Bang-won recited a poem to dissuade Jeong Mong-ju from remaining loyal to the Goryeo court, but Jeong Mong-ju answered with another poem that affirmed his loyalty. Yi Seong-gye is said to have lamented Jeong Mong-ju's death and rebuked his son because Jeong Mong-ju was a highly regarded politician by the common people.

 

The bridge where Jeong Mong-ju was murdered, nowadays in North Korea, has now become a national monument of that country. A brown spot on one of the stones is said to be Jeong Mong-ju's bloodstain, and is said to become red whenever it rains.

What a rich story. Learning this part of Korea's history must be a little complex as you'll see that Bang-won betrayed Poeun but at the same time if Bang-won didn't get to where he was, they wouldn't have Sejong the Great. 

 

Just checked a few minutes ago and the new episode isn't up on Netflix yet? Vagabond (which airs at the same time I think) is already updated but not My Country.

So here it is said that is known that YBW didn't do the murder himself but ordered it, while in the show they say he killed him with his own hands, and that is used as an excuse for hiring Hwi so YBW could order him to kill people, and not kill them himself... The reality kinda undermines that reasoning :)

I wish they would have filmed the actual murder-that would have made it more dramatic...

DAMN,this is immoral,to expect us to wait till Friday after that freaking cliffhanger!!!!

 

I'm quite sure that Hwi double plotted with Bang Won to cross Nam Jeon and go all out with the assassination as part of the show and out Nam Jeon in front of The King for trying to kill a royal and forcing him to loose his status,position and grace as his trusted man and so choosing Bang Won...Hwi clearly shot all of Bang Won's guards as well as Tae Ryong on their sholders or points that didn't kill them and Tae Ryong obviously for one of the greatest swordsmen of that time backed out with just one arrow...I think Hwi clearly expected Nam Jeon would try to get rid of Bang Won after the poster with the info is out in the air and he thinks Bang Won is the one who did it and has the secret letter so more than sure after Bang Won also knew about all Hwi backstory accepted Hwi's devised assassination plan getting rid of him as Nam Jeon wanted and making the King loose a man who would help him...So at that moment both Hwi and Bang Won choose each other no matter the ulterior reasons(Hwi keeping&saving Yeon and maybe his life and Bang Won his position and getting rid of a thorn weakening his father's position,warn the other high ups and a valuable possible new comrade) as they had more in common than against while Nam Jeon failed to see that he gave Hwi the perfect person to ally with and for all his big talk failed to read him,actually underestimating Hwi and that will ultimately be his downfall...Something that i hint Sun Ho could see...

My heart really ached for Jeom Beom's story,such a sad one and he is just one of many who suffered in that period...I actually expected and kinda wanted for Hae Jae to tell Hwi that his father saved her when she was small,it would have been an even greater emotional moment....Now,i love badass Hwi,that scene at the party when he went after Nam Jeon with that sword looked sooo freaking badass!!!!

Hwi is becoming more and more unpredictable it's sooo awesome! And they left us with this cliffhanger, what a cliffhanger! How can I wait till next week :tears:

 

Rating is 4.9%, I'm trying not to think much of the rating since there are many things to consider, it's a cable channel, 11 is apparently late for Koreans (not for me lol), and people are watching through Netflix, so I hope it's not a big deal. It's popular on Naver and the actors keep on being among the hot searches it pleases me.

It's actually good because it's equivalent rating like in the public channels is 9.8% just almost the same with vagabond.
